I'm no Cap mastermind or anything but how can they make this work next year once they sign Stone to an 8 year 9.5 AAV. I can't seem to make it work and someone has to go. Even if they don't resign Karlsson it's still tight.

You gotta figure the cap will rise to about $83M. That will cover Stone and Tuch. In order to cover Schmidt and Fleury they may need to trade Riley Smith or else risk losing Karlsson. They can't keep both in my opinion. They'll also recoup $2M when Brassard's retained salary comes off the books. They should be in decent shape next year. The following year David Clarkson's $5.25M cap hit will expire, as well.
